Charlton FC looks to sign new FD

With just a few days until the new football season kicks off, Premiership club Charlton Athletic has revealed it is looking to sign a new finance director.

The club, promoted to the Premier League last year, is understood to be ready to offer their new signing £65,000 a year – the same as top players earn in a week.

A spokeswoman for the club confirmed the salary and said they were confident of finding a new FD shortly.

Meanwhile Deloitte & Touche today released its tenth Annual Review of Football Finance, which found that income in the game for 1999/00 grew by £128m (up 13%) to £1,078m.

This makes English football the richest league in the world and the first to break through the Billion Pound Barrier.

Gerry Boon, Head of Deloitte & Touche Sport, the Sports Business Consultancy, said: ‘This record revenue comes before the full impact of the new TV deals ‘kicks-in’ – so yet more impressive growth is on the way. But, it is of critical importance that clubs use this extra money to repair their financial position.’
